Original

A couple of years ago I was really into beading, and I designed and made bracelets for all of my female relatives as Christmas presents. This year I'm racking my brains to think of this year's present "theme", and I'm coming up short. I'm almost ready to do the bracelet thing again -- hey, you can never have too much of a good thing, right? On the other hand, that would be sooo un-original. Maybe I'll make necklaces this time around so I don't duplicate! I'm tempted to just give boxes of chocolate (now there's an original thought).

Make your own chocolates--it is very simple to do and looks expensive. :) Love the beaded bracelets, my mom just got into doing original beaded jewelry designs.

I vote for the necklaces! They would complete the "set" that the bracelets began. And they would be such a great hit because of their beauty.

Ooh pretty. I would be happy getting multiple bracelets. I remember when I'd make my own stuff, ah back in the day. One year I put wax stickers on candles, and I've made chocolates in cute little molds.

Oh lovely bracelets. I don't wear bracelets too often, but I would be delighted to get several like that. I make cards and lavendar bags but have never yet made jewellery. I should try some day

Great bracelets, I would be chuffed as nuts to get one of those for xmas. Good idea to make your presents. You have me inspired now, doing something about it will be a totally different thing however.
